WHAT IS THE PARENTING TEENAGERS COURSE ?
The Parenting Teenagers Course is for any parent, step-parent, or carer of children aged 11 to 18. Meeting with other parents over five Thursday evenings, you will receive practical wisdom to help you manage your relationship with your children. You will hear a variety of experts and opinions and be given the chance to discuss related issues with other parents. Each session starts with a meal together!
WHAT DOES IT COVER? Topics include:
- Meeting our teenagers' needs
- Setting the boundaries
- Building the relationship
- Helping our teenagers make good choices
- Looking to the future
WHERE AND WHEN IS IT ?
Where numbers of guests are small, the course will be hosted in a home in the Bournemouth / Southbourne area. Otherwise courses are held at St Swithun's Church, Gervis Road, Bournemouth. The next course dates are planned to start January 2017 (dates to be confirmed with guests!) - Sessions start at 7.15 p.m. with a snack and end by 9.15 p.m. prompt.
WHAT IS THE COST ?
We ask for £10 per guest to cover the cost of the snacks, and course materials over the five sessions. However, we want no one to miss the course due to cost. So if cost is an issue, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

WHAT PEOPLE HAVE SAID
"The most important thing I learnt was finding out that I’m not alone and that communication is paramount.”
"I enjoyed listening to others and spending time with other parents and having space to think through what I heard."
The course was created by Nicky and Sila Lee who have worked with couples and families for over 20 years and speak regularly on parenting. They are co-authors of "The Marriage Book" and "The Parenting Book" and a number of related courses. While the course is based on Christian principles, it is relevant and helpful for any parent with or without a Christian faith or church background.
